As a participant in Fastaval, it is your own responsibility to get to and from Fastaval, but we have gathered some information about your options to help you get there.

DIT

DIT means Do It Together and is just about the most important and unique thing about Fastaval.

At Fastaval you’re neither a guest nor a customer, but a participant. This means that in the course of your Fastaval, you must give a
couple of hours of your time to the community. It is YOURS and our Fastaval, and so it is that we all give a hand to make
everything come together. Every year the DIT’s do their bit to make sure that Fastaval has a working common area, roleplaying
games, clean toilets, sandwiches for the hungry, the Oasis, the Bar and everything else.

The way that DIT works is that you sign up for one or more tasks. By default, you get just one task during Fastaval, with which you
help an area. It’s nice, and you meet lots of good people from the whole convention. It is so very nice that every year there are
Super DIT’s who choose to spend their whole Fastaval helping out.

If you need to get in contact with the DIT responsible, Nynne, you can call the phone number: +45 61 40 92 63 (only active during Fastaval).

How to become a DIT

DIT service is mandatory (unless you’re already some sort of organizer). You sign up for DIT when you sign up for Fastaval. Here
you can indicate when you would like to help out with DIT, and you have an opportunity to influence what you want to do.

You might DIT in:

  • Cleaning rooms
  • Dirtbusters (over 18)
  • Dishwashing
  • Fastaval Junior
  • James (helping out during the Otto party)
  • Party bar (alcohol-free)
  • Party dishwashing
  • Party setup
  • The Bar (over 18)
  • The Coffee Inn
  • The fire watch (over 18)
  • The Kiosk
  • The Oasis (over 18)

Setup and cleanup

Setup and cleanup mark the beginning and end of Fastaval. It is something we do together, to get it done as fast as possible so we can enjoy our Fastaval.

Setup starts Monday morning before Fastaval. We receive the keys for the school at 9 AM and the preparation work for Fastaval starts at 10 AM. Setup lasts until Wednesday at noon, where we arrange and prepare the school classrooms for roleplay and set up the school for Fastaval. During the setup, Fastaval provides breakfast, lunch and dinner for all of you who are at the school.

Cleanup starts with breakfast Monday morning at 9 AM, after an amazing Otto Party. We’ll spend the day cleaning the school and restoring it to the condition we received it in. It’s a tough job, but it is a lot easier and more enjoyable when we help each other. Cleanup isn’t done until everything is cleaned and back to the ordinary and the school janitor has approved the school. Fastaval provides dinner, as we usually celebrate the end with pizza on the house.

For both setup and cleanup, we need all the help we can get. Even if you’re only able to help and lend a hand part-time, we would still love to have you.

You’ve chosen to participate at Fastaval online!

After Fastaval went online in 2021, we’ve been inspired by the possibilities offered to our participants by a digital solution. 

This is why it’s possible for you to experience a bit of Fastaval online from the comfort of your living room, should you not be able to participate in the physical event. 

Fastaval Discord server

With a Digital Fastaval ticket, you will have access to the Fastaval Discord server, where you will be able to join all the channels we remember from 2021 – hangout chats, live streams, Fastaval updates, etc.

 

Fastaval Scenarios

You also have the option to play Fastaval scenarios in your own home, or join an online game on the Fastaval discord server. All you have to do is send an email to info@fastaval.dk with the following info: your participant number, which scenario you want to play, and the number of participants – and we will send you the scenario by mail. You are welcome to request more than one scenario. 

Fastaval regrettably cannot offer to put groups together or set the time for game starts for online scenarios. This means that the participants themselves need to put a group together and find a game master. You are encouraged to look for players on the Fastaval Discord server!

If you’ve already gotten a group together, only one of you needs to send an email and have the scenario sent to you. We’d love it if you’d inform us who your fellow players are.

The scenarios will be sent out before Fastaval, and you’re free to choose when to play them.
